What exactly is a “Consignment” wine?

’Consignment’ is an LCBO channel through which Ontario agencies can import wines (and spirits) by the case. This is often where restaurateurs, sommeliers, collectors and those-in-the-know purchase their wine. But there’s no reason you shouldn’t be buying wine through consignment too.

Lifford Wine & Spirits is the largest Consignment agent in Ontario. Here’s how it works with us: browse the 300 or so Consignment wines available on our website. There are products  from every corner of the globe to choose from. For 20 years we’ve been travelling the world in search of the finest wines for our exclusive portfolio. We’ve got iconic wines from producers like Joseph Phelps. Inglenook. Heitz. Felton Road. Pio Cesare. Felsina. Il Poggione. Domaine Weinbach. Brokenwood. Seña. Quinta do Noval. And many more, at all price ranges.


Why do I have to purchase by the case?

Because those are the rules! Due to Ontario laws, we are only permitted to sell Consignment wines by the case format that they were imported in. We generally import our wines in cases of 12 bottles, sometimes in cases of 6 for more premium wines, and very rarely, in cases of 4, 3 or 1 for special formats (magnums, etc.).


How can I pay?

We accept Visa, Mastercard, and American Express.
